MicroLED is the first new screen tech in a decade. Can it beat OLED?

At CES 2018, Samsung wowed the crowds with a wall sized TV, using a technology called MicroLED. This wasn't the first time we've heard about the tech. Both Sony and Samsung demoed a similar technology the year before for movie theaters and other huge-screen commercial uses. Sony even dropped hints about it as early as 2014. MicroLED can also power tiny screens. Apple currently uses OLED displays for the iPhone X and Apple Watch, but it's reportedly developing its own in-house MicroLED displays for use in mobile devices, starting with the watch. Details are scarce and it'll likely be years (if ever) before Apple brings it to market, but Cupertino's interest provides further evidence that MicroLED could be big.
